The class of 2025 has many talented players but when it comes to the shooting guard position it has seen its share of talent flourish each year with players continuing to rise the rankings. Here are my top shooting guards for the 2025 class.
Moore is a very smart and methodical player with the ball in his hands as he is very patient when looking for his shots. He takes the right shot almost every time within an offense and has a fast and high release point making it difficult to get a hand on it. His driving ability is excellent; he likes to seek contact when going to the rim to draw multiple fouls. Moore is explosive in the fastbreak setting using his quickness to get by anyone in front of him.
Joe-Samuel is an excellent three-point shooter and likes to get his shots up in a hurry. He has a very quick release point while also being 6’4″ making it difficult for defenses to get a good contest. He is always moving without the basketball and likes to come off of off-ball screens to get his open shots. His midrange and finishing game is great as he has an effective eye fake move he will go to get defenders jumping in the air.
Loughlin is a player who can do everything for his team and doesn’t have any significant weaknesses in his game as he continues to get better each year. At 6’4″ he can play and guard multiple positions and is a matchup nightmare for anyone looking to guard because of his quickness. He can shoot the three-ball well and has extended range in that area. Loughlin will look to attack the rim whenever he can looking to draw contact from multiple defenders in the air. His midrange game is smooth and has tight and crafty handles to create lots of space for open shots.
Brown is an athletic shooting guard who is a terrific midrange player paired with a dominant inside game. He works the midrange as well as anyone and can go to a post fadeaway shot making it tough for defenses to get a hand on it because of his 6’4″ size. If defenses press him too tight on the perimeter he will make them pay with his quickness and impressive handles as he will blow right by them and get into the paint where he makes a lot of his baskets from.
Blackley can shoot the lights out from deep with his range seemingly being unlimited and must be guarded the second he passes the half-court line. He has a smooth release and always has his feet set no matter the position he is in with the ball in his hands. He will come off of off-ball screens throughout a game and is even great at finishing around the rim when he needs to. On defense, he is great and has great timing and instincts on when to poke the ball free and intercept passing lanes.
